feeding
a mosquito -
just one


 

has the sun
come to a standstill too?
lingering heat


 

white Christmas?
the pohutukawa
bleeds colour


 

taking flesh ...
the words of mystery
we caress


 

days stretch into
the fullness of summer
but still ...


oily light
skids off the ngaio ...
sultry afternoon


 

lightning ...
the flash of thunder
before it sounds


 

all this rain
as if something will change ...
the year ends


 

swaying trees -
the sound of music
within us


 

skipping
the light fandango -
new year shift


 

aha
another year
atishoo


monkey
in the middle ...
shadow dance


still the sparkle
in a father's eyes ...
whispered haiku


 

and yet
through her fingers
time without end


imagine that ...
the unfolding night
between stars


 

ahh moonlight!
this is the gift
she loved


ebbing tide ...
dusk brims over
my shadow


 

stillness ...
the tug of daylight
withdrawing


 

life lessons
the gap between
two headstones


 

dying light ...
come share my Ardbeg
wayward midge
